Yeah and Sahaprom absolutely dominated him in their last encounter, couldn't stop him but apart from that did a better job than Donaire even (dominated and
landed so many clean rights and worked more) but admittedly Nishioka got a fair bit better with experience (but was a little faded by the time Nonito dominated him, so everything considered the wins are about equal IMO)
Sahaprom was a long term Muay Thai champ' (Raja stadium) and had beaten Daorung in his second fight (one of the greatest technical fights you'll ever see BTW) before having his style altered forever at the stone hands of Nana Konadu.
He was well into his 'comeback' by the time Choi gave him hassle. Tseveenpuree is a natural warrior mate, no doubt.
